Electronic Navigational Charts

Our common aim is to ensure maritime safety and good quality navigational charts can provide it.

Maritime Administration of Latvia develops official vector electronic navigational charts (ENC) that cover Latvian waters. ENCs are developed in accordance with IMO/IHO recommendations and standard S-57 3.1. (Format *.000) to be used in ECDIS (Electronic Chart Display and Information System that provides depiction of electronic charts in computer monitor). ENCs are updated on a regular basis via monthly Notices to Mariners which includes Temporary (T) and Preliminary (P) notices.
Navigational charts of Latvian waters are distributed by official distributors and Maritime Administration of Latvia. List of distributors can be found in PRIMAR website.
